I loved this place. Its a little hole in the wall location in a strip mall in Miami Beach. It's a gem in the beer wasteland that is Miami but it also stands up to some of the best places I've been anywhere.
I love the personality...it's obviously non corporate and run by people that love beer. They have only 12 taps(no macros) but all are high quality. The printed and lamenated menu give the impression that they don't change their taps all that often but if you ask the bartender what they have you will get a list of special offerings that are not on the menu. The beer is fresh and you can tell they maintain their lines, it's a short draw system which I really think helps improve the quality of the beer they serve. They have 4 house made beers all of which are very good. The cask of Goudens Carolus was outstanding.
I was there during the day and really got to know the 65 yr old bartender that has been working there since the place opened in 1995. Its refreshing to see an owner that values knowledge and experience over youth and a short skirt! As an aside David, the bartender drives 45 minutes to get to work every day...how much must he love his job!

Nice place on the beach, carries some nice beers on tap. Normally they serve some of their own beers, made for Abbey Brewing, as well as other beers. A beer bottle menu is also available, loaded with Belgian ales and some craft beer.
Also available, liquor.

If I would have written a review years ago when I learned of this place I would have described it as a go to tiny dive bar. Not much has changed, but they have had great success and have managed to expand quite a bit. The atmosphere is laid back, dim, yet quaint. It has a long wood bar as well as picnic tables to throw back your beer.

This cozy brewpub features 4 house brews, an additional 10 taps,1 rotating cask ale, and a very choice selection of 20 "world class" bottles. The bottles include 2 Rocheforts, 3 Chimays and 2 Westmalles.
Easy to find and walking distance from the beach (about 1/2 mile}. Small but has a remarkable variety of seating, including 7 seats at the bar, one large u-shaped couch, a few booths and tables. Great service. Relatively clean. Nice relaxed atmosphere. 2 good sized plasma TVs. No food.
